Five of the nine sus­pects im­pli­cated in the fa­tal beat­ing of a 22-year-old Amer­i­can stu­dent on Zakyn­thos last week were re­manded in cus­tody yes­ter­day on charges of in­ten­tional homi­cide after de­fend­ing them­selves be­fore an in­ves­ti­gat­ing mag­is­trate.

Ac­cord­ing to po­lice sources on the is­land, the five sus­pects in­cluded a 34-year-old Greek bar­man, a 32-year-old Bri­tish na­tional of Ser­bian ori­gin and three Ser­bian na­tion­als.

Another four sus­pects – in­clud­ing a 33year-old Serb who is be­lieved to have in­sti­gated the brawl that re­sulted in the bru­tal beat­ing of Bakari Hen­der­son last Friday – are to ap­pear be­fore a lo­cal mag­is­trate to­day and to­mor­row.

Hen­der­son died of mas­sive head in­juries after be­ing set upon by a group of peo­ple in the is­land’s rowdy La­ganas district fol­low­ing an ar­gu­ment in a bar.
